2341 - Letter Journal 4 - the cover

I love this quote and used it at the cover of Letter Journal 4 which is finished now. 

 The Letter Journal format is my favourite meanwhile, I favour  to have squared pages to work on in the journal .

I had some fabric that I had printed on many months ago and it came handy to use as a cover for the Letter Journal 4 now. 

 Just marks and things used on this - it was such a great fun and relaxing to create this. Of course it is meant to be linked to 
Creating such pages brings me emotional well-being.

And tea brings me inner harmony - I have gathered raspberry leaves nearby to dry my own raspberry leaf tea for winter.
I got 3 jars of tea leaves - that is a huge stock of tea for me...lol.


Happy T-Day girls! 

Lots of 


  1. Liebe Susi,

    Dein Einband schaut wundervoll aus und der Spruch ist einmalig und gefällt mir auch sehr.

    Und Dein Himbeerblättertee schmeckt bestimmt wahnsinnig lecker.

    Einen schönen Tag
    wünscht Dir

  2. The fabric gives a lovely texture to this bright and cheery cover Susi, I can imagine you 'just creating and having fun' with this. Love the fabric button and feather as a focal point.
    I grow raspberries in the garden and I've never thought about picking the leaves for tea, thanks for the prompt, will try that today.

  3. What a gorgeous cover Susi - and a wonderful quote. Looks as though you will have more than enough raspberry leaf tea for the winter :)

  4. ich liebe quadratische formate auch und der umschlag ist ja schon mal wieder toll geworden! du bist wieder voll in deinem element, wie schön!
    hab einen schönen herbst und liebe grüße, johanna

  5. Beautiful cover, so many lovely details!

  6. Good morning Susi, Your journal cover is so pretty-I love it. I have not tried raspberry leaf tea-I do love to dry some of my own teas too-Happy T

  7. Immer wieder so schön und anders. Jetzt beginnt langsam Teezeit, aber bitte noch nicht gleich.
    Genieß das wunderschöne Herbstwetter im W4tel.

  8. A gorgeous journal cover, soft colours, wonderful detail and texture. I can see how you enjoyed creating this. I really agree that art is fun and relaxing.
    Raspberry tea sounds lovely.
    Happy T day wishes Susi.

  9. That is gorgeous printed fabric Susi. It makes a super cover. And is that a moose on that stamp? That is a cool addition as is the feather. Your book looks great and hopefully your mug of tea warms you up and pus you in a good place to make more art. Missing your posts my friend. Happy T day. Hope your sun is back. Hugs-Erika

  10. Wow, liebe Susi,
    wie ich sehe, ist die Muse wieder zu Dir gekommen. Dein neues Werk gefällt mir wieder ausgesprochen gut und es lädt ein zur intensiven Betrachtung. (Zuerst wollte ich schreiben: zum Eintauchen, denn das kam mir ganz spontan in den Sinn, aber dann wusste ich nicht, ob man das auch so schreiben kann.)
    Das Zitat gefällt ebenfalls ausgesprochen gut, auch wenn ich es schon oft gehört habe, so ist es doch die Wahrheit, sie zu erkennen war allerdings ein Prozess.
    Ich wünsche Dir noch eine wunderschöne und kreative Woche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  11. This is such a beautiful fabric journal cover Susi!! Love the colors, touches of nature and that wonderful quote too. Good to have several jars of the tea leaves on hand for the colder months. Thanks for sharing your lovely art journal and tea. Happy T day!

  12. Susi this is such a delightful journal, I love the colours and patterns you have created and I’m sure it will be filled with more wonderful art. Xxx

  14. Dear Susi, you have been missed, so lovely to see you back, and with this beautiful cover, for your journal. I love the fabric with print is a wonderful idea, and so love the colors and all you did of details. So lovely , with homemade tea :-) Hugs, Dorthe, xx

  15. Homemade raspberry leaf tea does sound delicious! Happy T Tuesday :)

  16. A very creative, stunning piece complimented by a wonderful quote.
    The tea - icing on the cake, Susi!!
    Big hugs on your beautiful post. You brightened my day.

  17. Wualaaaaa Susi !! This Art journal is absolutely GORGEOUS !! I love love it, the cover is wonderful, witgh great colours and fantastique design. Beautiful feather ! Enjoy your tea !
    I wish you a very nice evening, big hugs, Caty

  18. Your journal cover is perfect! I love the colors and the texture from printing on fabric.
    Raspberry leaf is so good for woman to drink. I didn't think to collect any leaves this year but I will have to remember next year. Did your garden give you a good yield of veggies?
    So glad to see you back so I am guessing your muse has returned in full force. Although, I could never tell that it had departed. Your art always seems to speak to me in it's free and artistic style.
    Happy Tea Day, Dear Susi!

  19. This is seriously tremendous. At first I thought it was a complex photo-edited piece with layers and filters but seeing it beside your teacup brings it right into real life.
    Yes, the simple things. the ordinary things, these are the best.

  20. Oh Susi, I don't know where to begin. That journal cover is fabulous. Don't you love it when another journal is complete? This one is super, beautiful, and immediately tells the story of what one can expect inside. The concept of repetition is often overlooked. It works perfectly here. And the fact you shared it at Art Journal Journey is even better, dear friend and co-admin.

    I would never have considered saving raspberry leaves. I have blackberries. I wonder if that would work. I save all my various mints, though. Looks like you are ready to warm yourself with this tea when winter arrives. I was impressed and learned something new, too. Thanks for sharing this tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend.

  21. Wowww Susi, dein Letter Journal ist ja wohl klasse gestaltet. Gefällt mir sehr.

  24. hello Susi, I really admire the cover of your book and, in fact, the whole way you've put it together. the colours are beautiful too.

    Ganz liebe Grüße Ulrike

  30. the simple thing is the best.
    I love drink a tea

  31. What a beautiful journal page/cover. I just love that colour combination and of course the fabric makes it! Beautiful.
    I never thought to use raspberry leaves to make tea. Does it taste a bit of raspberries? I must try that when I come across them.
    Happy belated T-Day,

  32. Dieses Zitat gefällt mir auch sehr! Aber dein Cover ist einmalig schön! So viele Texturen, sogar selbst bedruckten Stoff hast du verwendet und als I-Tüpfelchen diese zarte Feder!
    Das Foto mit deinen getrockneten Himbeerblättertees und dem Teesieb in der Tasse UND diesem prachtvollen Letterjournal ist ein Kunstwerk für sich!
    So ein wunderschöner Beitrag insgesamt!!

  33. This is an amazing way to cover your journal Susi! The colours are beautiful! Your home made tea will surely taste better than from a packet?! Hugs,Chrisx

  34. Sorry to be so late visiting this T Day, we have been on a 2 week vacation visiting our friends in Maine, America and Tuesday was our last day with them. We flew back yesterday and arrived back home today, so I figured better late then never ...lol 😉. Wow, your letter journal page and spread is amazing! I love how you incorporated the fabric and feather and your choice of colours and textures is stunning dear Susi! I hope you are having an awesome week and sending you very happy belated T Day wishes! J 😊 x

    1. Meant to say cover not page ...lol 😉. Also I love the quote you used too - perfect! Hugs Jo x

  35. Such beautiful journal pages Susi, they are so gentle and peaceful. Enjoy your tea! xx

  36. Susi, your cover is just stunning, and so organically beautiful. I am in cover envy now, and need to rush to get a journal done so I can make one. :D

  37. Your printed fabric was just waiting patiently for this project Susi, I love the way paint holds onto the surface I can almost feel the texture upon the surface. The size is so useful, I look forward to seeing what treats await us inside.
    Belated Happy T Day, your Tea sounds most delicious.
    Warmest of hugs Tracey xx

  38. Such a gorgeous journal cover! Love the quote as well.
    Happy T Day!

  39. Hi again and what a fabulous journal. I do love the way you use your fabric and artistic creations to the fullest. Wonderful quote...hugs.xx

  40. Hello Susi! I had visited earlier in the week and I am glad I re-visited; because my comment did not post! :/ So, will try again~
    I really enjoy your style and freshness. I like the mix of media you use; always beautiful and interesting. I was able to look back (thanks for the 'link') at the letter journal format. I hope some day to try something of that nature; [I used to be more ambitious- we shall see.]
    Thank you for all the inspiration you give us~ Hugs to you, karen o

  41. So much comfort in this post. A wonderful quote. Love you journal and the photo of it alongside the tea. Enjoy.


  42. Yes.... sweet little things make my day.

  43. Beautiful, I love the dreamy look!!

  44. oh such beautiful things you make, always. xo

  45. This cover is beautiful, Susi. I thought I had gotten around to all the T-ladies Oct. 9. But somehow I seem to have missed you. So sorry. Are thee demerits for being so late? Hugs, Eileen
